So the president and the media are trying to say that the Tea Party movement and the Occupy Wall St. movement are the same? Really? Do they really believe that Americans are actually dumb enough to buy this load of garbage?
Let’s start with this so-called, spontaneous movement call OWS, were there are numerous videos that clearly show union leaders and socialist leaders planning this as far back as April and May. It started with a lot of students, but has since has included homeless people being paid to stay there for the show. It has even come to light that they are being paid to go door to door soliciting money for causes, but then turning the money over to the OWS movement to keep it going.
They are littering, camping out in public places, and in many cases, just partying. They have had over 2,500 arrests so far and now they are throwing bottles and rocks at the police. They do not even realize just how messed up their message really is. They say “we want the greedy rich people to pay, we want our share of their money, we want equality, we want someone to pay for our education”. That kind of sounds greedy to me, when they speak all I hear from them is “me, me, me”.
They openly state their hatred of Jews, and the president even endorses them. So if I am able to understand this correctly, hatred of Jews is ok because it is not about a race, ethnicity, or religion that these people find worth while. But the president and media calls them a peaceful movement, they apparently don’t see anything wrong with them wanting to shut down our government and financial system. Sounds as peaceful as the crowds in Egypt who wanted their president gone.
The liberals and media referred to the Tea Party as violent and racist who wanted to destroy America. They portrayed the Tea Party as attempting to destroy America because they wanted the business as usual to stop in Washington DC. They wanted to cut excessive spending and cut back on the shear size of a government, that has grown by more than 150% in the last 3 years.
They did not want government handouts, they wanted a leader who would create legislation that would entice business owners to expand and create jobs. Legislation so they could start their own business if needed. They wanted work, not handouts. They wanted the bailouts to stop, they wanted the country to succeed, which requires the government, banks, and Wall Street to survive, not be destroyed.
They did not expect the rich to pay their way or for them to pay for their student loans, cars, TV’s, or healthcare. The Tea Party wanted to have jobs and earn it, the American way, using capitalism. They held their rallies on the weekends, when most were not working. They did not challenge the police and throw bottles and rocks at them. They waived the American flag and for this type of activity, they were labeled as violent, racist, and out to destroy America.
Most liberals and the president called the Tea Party movement racist, violent, enemy, and terrorist, yet they endorse the OWS movement. Now they are trying to say that both movements are the same. So, if I understand them correctly, if you believe they are the same, and you endorse and stand with OWS, then am I to take it that they are admitting that they are racist, violent, enemies, and terrorist.
America, WAKE UP! Do you realize that right now, is the premium election campaign season? It is time that as voters, we start asking the tough questions from those seeking office. We need to ask the questions the media will not ask, about where they stand on issues and debates. Ask the questions that move us in the direction we want.
This goes for any office, President, Senator, Governor, Secretary of State, State Attorney General, Mayor, Alderman, or even Sheriff, regardless of party, send the message to both parties. Do not accept a politically correct answer, make it clear you want a definitive, decisive answer that is straight to the point, no fluff. Force the direction of their debates and campaigns by asking the right questions over, repeatedly until they get the message. And keep asking both parties, until the debates and answers correspond with the wishes of the American Voter! Below is a copy of questions that we need to start asking politicians.

I plan on sending this list of questions, from my blog, to everyone running for office that I get to vote on. Starting with those in my home state of Missouri, all the way up to the president. If I get any responses, I will post them here for everyone to read. I also plan on asking the local media if they intend to ask these questions as well.
I hope that others will begin asking their candidates these questions and asking their local media why they are not asking these questions from candidates. These are universal questions, that anyone has an opinion on. It takes about 2 minutes to read all the questions and if being honest, they can be answered in 10 minutes or less.
President Obama has the only job that should not be outsourced overseas, and yet, it appears it has been. Everything he does seems to be for some other country. Is he still the president of this country? Why is this President so concerned with what is going on in other countries when we have so many problems here in America? He worries about other countries having jobs and green energy, but not us. Don’t we need those things? Isn’t the job of the President to work on the problems of America?
He is just backwards, he does all the good things for other countries and all the bad things to our country. He worked with GE, not just helping them pay no taxes, but in building green energy systems for India, while he tells us we need to buckle up, our own energy cost will be going up. The rebels in Libya get $25 million dollars. He borrows from the Chinese, then gives them foreign aid. He shoves his Healthcare Reform bill down our throats so everyone will have healthcare, oops, except for 32 million people, and we should expect our healthcare costs to rise.
He supports the OWS that wants to destroy our economy. He uses them for a smoke screen for his policies and tactics to get the spotlight off of the Solyndra and Fast and Furious scandals. He keeps adding wars and sending troops to other countries, when we can’t afford it. He keeps picking away at our Constitution in an attempt to do away with it. The Fed keeps printing money like it’s going out of style. And if you haven’t been keeping track, these are all bad things for us.
It is nice to help other countries, but our economy is in such bad shape, it’s hard to justify it. We get so wrapped up worrying about other countries and there is no one to help us. So who comes to our rescue when we fall? It’s not good, but a lot of us are feeling a little selfish these days, where is our jobs? Where’s our green energy? Where’s our foreign aid? Our president is off worrying about some other country. Where’s our knight in shining armour? We have got a lot of problems, so who is going to save us?
In the 3 years that Obama has been in office, he has been a very busy boy. He has let this country fall apart and has created legislation that prevents job and economic growth. He has helped create jobs in India, Kenya, and now Finland. He promised Egypt a billion dollars to help them create jobs, in Egypt! He gave $25 million to a band of rebels in Libya, you know, the ones who were trying to kill our troops in Iraq. He can hear the protestors on Wall Street who want to collapse our economic system and government just like he stood behind those who toppled Egypt, Libya, Yemen, and Tunisia. Now, while America continues to suffer, he says he is trying to create jobs in America. Sorry, but after what we have seen the last couple years, we just don’t believe it. Really, the only job he is concerned with is his OWN!
He is now using his jobs bill as another way to find loopholes to once again circumvent congress, yet again, similar to the Libya’s not-war, war. He has even assassinated an American citizen, with a total disregard for our constitution, congress, and laws. He has spent more time trying to get all the other world leaders out of power and collapse their country. He was opposed to war just 3 years ago, now he spends more time interfering with every country on the planet and creating chaos.
Not only is he using his jobs bill as a campaign tactic, but also as another excuse to work around our laws, constitution, and congress. His adviser even stated that it will not stop there, they will be going over every agency and policy to see what all they can alter without congressional approval. Excuse me, but that is a sign of a dictator.
Apparently, only him, the media, and a few of those close to him seriously refuse to believe that his presidency is in trouble. And it is, because America can see through him and the media. But he shouldn’t feel totally alone, many of those around him are in trouble too. America will be making changes to both of the parties in the 2012 elections. We will be restoring the office of the President and we will be renewing our commitment to the Constitution, Declaration of Independence, and Bill of Rights.
Ron Paul is a Libertarian running to be nominated by the Republican National Committee as the Official Republican Candidate. Because he is part of an outside party, he must be thrown in with the Republicans, however, the Republicans dislike him as much as the Democrats. And both sides have gone out of their way to make the people believe he is a crazy old fool. Why?
Because he is a serious threat to their 2 party system. He has stood his ground and has had the same message for over 30 years. He speaks what he believes, he votes based on what he believes and does not care what the other 2 parties or the media thinks about him.
Now here lately, when polls are taken, somehow Dr Paul seems to be left out. Couple months ago, Bill O’Reilly during one of his shows was discussing the poll standings, he first discussed the number one candidate, Mitt Romney, still the number one according to the media, went to a commercial break and came back and picked up where he left off, with the number three person. Uh, did I miss something, did we change the way we now count? There is something seriously amiss when both parties work together to keep you out!
Dr Paul has been opposed to getting off the Gold Standard since 1973, when it happened. He has been opposed to these wars that have cost us more than we could afford and knew that it was the beginning of a ‘holy war’ according to these extremist. Dr Paul has never waivered from his stand and beliefs, and has a voting record to prove he means what he says. Couple him with a Herman Cain and you have a winning campaign ticket the liberals can’t touch.
These two men have one thing in common, they are a threat to the establishment. The same old, same old, 2 party system is in trouble and that is why both Democrats and Republicans alike work to keep them out. Picking a candidate to vote for has never been so easy. In this day and age, when you see a candidate that concerns BOTH parties and the media, that is the American to vote for.
Recently there has been an increase of rhetoric by both the president and vice president. They cannot even hold a simple news conference or campaign fundraiser without using extreme rhetoric, the very thing that this administration accuses everyone else of doing.
This administration is in trouble and either they know it, or they’re in deep denial. Members of their own party have started questioning some of their rhetoric tactics, and many are even beginning to keep their distance in order to protect their own chances of getting re-elected.
Recently, on two separate occasions, VP Joe Biden has stated that if the Republicans don’t pass the jobs bill, rape and murder will increase. Is this a scare tactic or a threat? When questioned about it by a reporter from humanevents.com, Mr. Biden was rather testy and ended the questioning. The reporter should be concerned, did he not just hear what Mr. Biden said, he could be the next rape or murder victim if he is not careful! Does this mean if the president and vice president are not re-elected they will be raping and murdering people since they will be out of a job? What exactly was Mr. Biden implying?
The president himself has been using rhetoric and scare tactics for quite some time, remember when he was pushing his healthcare reform? He said people would be dying in the streets if it was not passed. Apparently, he did not know there was a federal law that required doctors and hospitals to stabilize any person, regardless if they were citizens or not, and could not turn them away, insured or not. Millions would be without insurance coverage if it was not passed, yet even though they found a way to slip it through, it still will leave millions without coverage.
Also during the debt ceiling debate, he was telling seniors and veterans that if the Republicans did not pass the bill, they would not get their monthly checks. After it was finally passed, the president went to a union rally and told everyone that the Republicans had enough nerve to try and use tactics to scare seniors.
Now we are at a point where their jobs bill is so important, yet, analyst have said the numbers do not match up. The president blames the Republicans for it not passing, yet many Democrats have said that they could not vote for it the way it was written, and would not pass it, in its current state.
The Obama administration needs to stop the rhetoric and create bills and legislation that will work. They need to stop accusing the other side of being in bed with big business when he and his own administration are in bed with GE and the unions. Stop with the attack on the rich. The president, vice president, most of congress and every one of their own campaign donors are the very ones they are going after. It is time to stop the rhetoric, either become true leaders or admit defeat and get out. America has had enough crap and it is time for the healing process.
Islamic extremist have been recruiting right here in America, calling for the destruction of our government, constitution, and judicial system while our own president and justice department looks the other way. We now have many supporters of socialism calling for the elimination of capitalism protesting in the streets under the name of Occupy Wall Street. It has now spread worldwide calling for an end to capitalism and the western way of life. They say they want equality. What they fail to realize is that socialism is not what they think. They seem to think that everybody will have a desk job or will not have to work at all. These protestors are in for a very rude awakening when reality hits them like a Mack truck.
As unlikely as it may seem, these to two groups are working together to bring our country down. The only thing they have in common is that they both want our destruction. One has no beliefs and is new at this, the other, comes from war torn countries, born and raised to hate us, firm in their beliefs, and have been planning for decades in taking us over, at any cost.
Between the OWS protestors trying to collapse the economy, wall street, and the banks to bring about socialism and the Islamic extremist calling for the destruction of our government, constitution, and rights, better buckle up it is going to be a very rough ride. Ever feel like you are in the middle of a tug of war?
It has become apparent that all of these people have united to achieve one goal, the destruction of the free world, capitalism, and our Constitution. However, once they achieve this goal it will be a new battle to see which group remains in power, as their unification will quickly come undone for the sole purpose of being the one who controls the new America.
Though one thing that neither of these groups have appeared to account for, is the fact that many Americans might seem as if they are quietly sitting at home letting them get their way. Most of America is well prepared and will not give up their constitution, rights, and freedoms without a fight. America may appear to be sleeping, but it is wide awake and ready to defend itself, and if you have not noticed, Americans don’t quit, they win.
I have been wondering how all these students manage to spend almost an entire month in a park, when they should be in class. I know that I myself am a student and part of my student loan requirement was that I had to maintain my grades and attend classes. If I miss 5 days in a 10 week session, I will be put on disciplinary action and if I miss 10 days, I am out of school.
The school said that it is part of the accreditation requirements, as well, or they will lose their status as an accredited school. Therefore, I ask, how is it these kids protesting are not kicked out of school due to their attendance record. The U.S. Department of Education and a non-government organization known as the Council for Higher Education Accreditation is suppose to ensure that the accredited schools follow and meet the guidelines required to be accredited are met. How is it these schools are not losing their accreditation? They are clearly either falsifying records and defrauding the government, or either the U.S. Department of Higher Education or the Council for Higher Education Accreditation is part of the scam.
This started well after school classes had begun, so if they claim that it is a class that all of these students signed up for, then there should be records of this in their registration. This class would have to have some sort of curriculum to go with it, which means the U.S. Department of Higher Education and the Council for Higher Education Accreditation Standards would have had to approve it several months or a year earlier for it to be approved. Which means that this would not have been a spontaneous movement as they claim.
What will happen to these schools if they lose their accreditation? Would the degrees issued by them be worthless pieces of paper? Will these schools have to refund all students tuition money? If the U.S. Dept. of Higher Education and/or the Council for Higher Education Accreditation is part of the scam, will it go down as another scandal under this administration? It does appear that the president is encouraging them to ditch their education, you know the education he is always using as a campaign gimmick or rhetoric against the other party. Now it appears their protest is just for his political gain. Why spend a day in class when you can party at the park and still get an Ivy League Degree.
How many of these students are receiving food stamps, housing assistance, or allowance from the state to cover daily expenses while attending school. Would they be defrauding the state government, as well, if they claim they are attending classes everyday? Have they violated any of the terms of grants by not attending school classes?
These students say they are tired of being poor, they could get a job instead of hanging out at the park. Some of them stated they wanted society to pay for their education, well, instead of signing up for that student loan maybe they should have asked Michael Moore or the president for a check first, then registered. You realize that getting people like Mr. Moore, the president, Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid, VP Joe Biden, and Susan Sarandon to cut checks to all of them directly would be the wealth redistribution they want.
By these rich people paying off all students, then all of us students could hang out at the park and not ever have to work for the degree the president talked us into signing up for. I know if they would just simply cut me a check for about $80k, I could go fishing at the park everyday instead of using that degree to go to work. Then equality could be achieved by becoming lazy overweight couch potatoes watching TV, playing video games, surfing the internet, interacting on social networks, and partying.
Of course under their theory of equality, where everyone gets paid the same and gets the same benefits, they assume that someone else will still volunteer to run the electric plants to power their toys, that someone will still volunteer to dig the ditches for their fiber optic cables, and someone will volunteer to collect the trash at the curb. All for the same pay and benefits as someone sitting behind a desk that has the same degree as themselves, maybe they will be the volunteers for the crappy jobs.
Here, once again, our president is planning on ignoring congress and pushing his legislation through as though they don’t even exist. They were put there by our founding fathers to prevent a future leader from abusing his power and governing under dictatorship like practices and policies.
President Obama feels as if he is above the laws and does not have to abide by the very constitution that was established to protect the people, their rights, and freedoms. He says he wants “Democracy”, well, with his education, he should be smart enough to know that our country is a republic that operates under true democracy.
He ignored congress and the people to shove his healthcare reform down our throats. Then he ignored congress and started yet another war in Libya, this coming from a man who before becoming president was clearly anti-war. He may have very well violated the constitution in ordering a hit on an American, without due process. He encourages protest in the street to bring down our financial industry and economy. And now he is planning on shoving a jobs bill down our throats without congress, a bill that many from his own party could not agree with.
At what point will congress and the American voters stand up and say enough Mr President, you have gone too far. At what point will people and congress stop worrying about being called a racist and do their job, forget political correctness, stop worrying about their image, and stand up.
Maybe it is time for the American voter to stand in the streets with signs calling for this president to step down. Will the UN step in at that point and require his resignation like in Egypt, Yemen, Tunisia, and Libya? Will they issue an arrest warrant for him? Where is their “Right to Protect Act” ideology.
He is clearly ignoring our constitution and operating as a dictator, he has oppressed his people and the economy. He has caused disruption in other countries, created wars, assassinated his own citizens, and caused economic hardship on a global basis. He continues to push it, to see how far he can go. What else does he have to do? What else has to happen before congress will do something? Before we do something?
The left fears someone like Herman Cain, oh, how they do fear him. The media itself is now using rhetoric tactics in order to discredit him and undermine his chance of becoming the GOP nominee.
They fear him because he refused to become one of their mindless slaves that relies on them to survive. He educated himself, became a free thinker, and climbed the ladder of success. He represents the very type of person they tried so hard to keep down and failed. He is a true leader who can win over the African-American vote and make them see how the left does not represent the little guy, but instead works to enslave them with their welfare programs. He is someone who actually had a job and worked, becoming a business leader. He knows how government regulations can actually prevent job growth. He is someone who knows what racism is really like and who started out poor and refused to let any of these things hold him back.
Herman Cain has proposed a 9-9-9 tax code that the Democrats and media are desperately trying to tear apart because it jeopardizes their agenda. His plan calls for the complete dismantling of the IRS and replacing it with a very simplified tax code. This would ELIMINATE loopholes for the rich and business entities. That means the government would keep the revenue brought in, instead of the current system where they return everyone’s money. It would automatically reduce the size of federal government which again saves huge amounts of waste.
This new revised flat tax code would allow and encourage business growth, which creates job growth. It also means the very foundation of America, the small mom and pop business opportunities, would once again be alive and thriving in America. That is what makes CAPITALISM work. Those who are encouraging welfare programs, increased government, and regulations are destroying the American dream of home ownership and being self employed. Therefore, Herman Cain’s 9-9-9 tax system is a threat to their agenda. They are saying seniors will be eating kibbles and bits and the poor would have to go door to door begging for food, which is nothing more than Democrat and media scare tactics.
In reality, seniors would still get their social security, people would still get temporary assistance, and people still would not pay taxes on food stamps, but in the end, they would either have to work or create a job and EARN their way like everyone else.
For the left, their star is falling and their greatest fear is rising. There is still hope in saving this great country of ours, it may never be the same from this point forward, we just need to make sure that this childish rhetoric stops and our rights and constitution is fortified and made even stronger for future generations to enjoy and learn from the mistakes we endured.
Some strange things are going on. Mitt Romney is the one that the media and people from the left keep saying is the best and most logical choice for the GOP nomination. Well, since when have they endorsed any GOP candidate. That is the first red flag that goes up. Then they go out of their way to attack Herman Cain anyway possible in hopes of trying to discredit him. What is it that they fear about Herman Cain and love about Mitt Romney?
Mitt Romney is what I like to classify as an empty suit. He knows how to dress well, is well educated, and he speaks well, but you must listen to him and look back at his previous campaign, legislation, and voting record to know him. He is one of the elite rich business men, who made his fortune by starting, buying, turning around many business companies, and investing in Wall Street. He also has a political background with many ties to the lobbying industry. His father also built his wealth doing the same thing, including politics and lobbyist ties. Mitt Romney also created “Romneycare”, which of course “Obamacare” was created by using Mitt Romney’s plan as a guideline of that particular legislation.
The media and those on the left are pushing so hard for Mitt Romney to get the nomination, because he will be an easy target for them to pick apart and give the president the greatest chance of re-election. They will attack him over Romneycare, they will go after him for his stand on the TARP bailout, they will show his voting record, previous campaigns, and his ties to Wall Street. During the latest debate he did not say that TARP worked, he simply stated it was designed well, showing how he prefers to play both sides. Finally, Mitt Romney is part of the establishment republicans.
Mitt Romney has had his moment in the spotlight, he tried in 2008 and again now. The voters are making it quite clear that he is not the man to rebuild our country. He is now a falling star that those in the media and on the far left are making every last ditch effort to prop him up so that they can have a chance of getting the president re-elected.
Herman Cain is running for office with little to no POLITICAL experience and little to no LOBBYIST ties. Recently, I watched a panel of experts discuss him, and the Democrats were opposed to putting a man in the White House that has no experience. WHAT? Surely they were not serious, they could not have been serious, their candidate is still proving that he has no experience.
Although, Mr. Cain lacks in the political experience, he has a lot of other qualities that make he a good candidate. He has been a successful business man for over 30 years, he is well educated, has a proven record of knowing how to run a business, and understands government regulations. One of the best things about him, is he has answered questions in a straight forward manner without worrying about being politically correct.
Herman Cain is a religious man, who has a clear Christian background and tends to base decisions and answers according to that background. There is no gray area about where he stands on it. He is a candidate who can attract voters from across the spectrum, regardless of race, gender, age, religious beliefs, or even ethnic background. He can easily appeal to the following voters: African-Americans, white, Hispanic, women, youth, seniors, Christians (all faiths), Tea Party, Republicans, Conservatives, and Democrats (those who are tired of being lied too and defending failed policies by the Obama Administration).
Now, should Mr Cain succeed in getting the GOP nomination and he chose Dr Ron Paul as his running mate for vice president, that would undoubtedly create another first. Future debates would become pay per view. Herman Cain debating President Obama and Ron Paul debating Joe Biden!
This ticket would also, for the first time in our memorable history, give this country a vice president that would have the business sense to run the country should he have too and be an adviser to the president with political expertise and experience. This ticket would also bring on board the libertarians at this point. I seriously believe the incumbents would be in trouble and they would know it. They would have to work overtime to keep the elections in 2012 from becoming a “Change” in history.
Mr. Speaker, what we seem to have is a failure to communicate in a adult and professional manner. Everyday it feels like you are simply countering the presidents rhetoric with your own. JUST STOP IT, Please!
It is time to show true leadership, if need be, use their own broken promises against them. You know as well as the American voters, that when a bill, amendment, or legislation comes before congress, it is followed by several weeks of childish bickering, name calling, and countering each others tactics, and nothing gets accomplished. Therefore, use transparency against them, and use it to bolster your own compromise or amendment.
Submit each one online as a PDF file for the voters to read, in detail, with all the fine print. We might just surprise all of you in Washington DC, just how well we can read and understand the legal strategies that are often entwined within such language that has been written in terms other than laymans.
However, be advised, by doing so, we will be able to see the truth. Why Senator Harry Reid will not let a bill onto the floor for vote, but by the same token, we will be able to see why you will not let a vote onto the House floor. This also requires you to draft and submit amendments, bills, and legislation, and not just verbal ideas. This transparency would stop a lot of the bickering and rhetoric from yourself, the president, and the senate majority leader, because the voter could see the details.
Transparency, would show the proposed spending, proposed cuts, and proposed budgets. It would show how, where, and with whom spending will take place. That would also include the pork barrel projects, job growth projects, and estimated stimulus packages or bailouts. We the people could then make decisions based on facts and not simply a bunch of childish rhetoric in Washington DC. It is suppose to be a city that houses our leaders, who are suppose to be professionals and according to Nancy Pelosi, “held to a higher standard”, and not a playground to see who the toughest bully on the block is. JUST STOP IT, Please.
American voters expect more from yourself. Many times you cannot even agree with your own party. This is where I have a problem with politicians such as yourself, as well as Senator Reid, you are both long term career politicians who have been there for the duration of America’s political systems downfall and self destruction. Both of you are more interested in your own gains and use the two party system as a game, which includes the mindset of politicians versus the voters.
I urge you Mr Speaker, Stop It Already! Offer solutions, make them visible for all to see, make theirs available for all to see, only then will the rhetoric, name calling, and bickering back and forth stop as you will all be held accountable and then we all can focus on the truth.
Now that the youth has risen up here in America, like in Egypt, Yemen, Tunisia, an Libya, will the UN demand that President Obama step down? After all, our president himself stated that when the people rise up, the right thing for a leader to do is step down. Because what goes around, comes around.
Considering this is the second round of American citizens to stand up during his administration, will the UN see this as an American Spring and impose sanctions and possible military action against our president and his administration? He has created an economic disaster for America, which affects the entire global economic system, he has caused the topple of governments, and created hostile situations around the world, mainly causing chaos in the middle east, which impacts the entire globe.
What we are unsure about is whether we would be better to have the UN interfere with our business, as our president has done to others, or bite our nails and do a lot of praying between now and the November 2012 elections. Until then, we can only hope that our president will stop his own rhetoric, cut back on the regulations and legislation, that prevents economic and employment growth. He is not the best leader, but he is all we have. He is our president, and as Americans and voters, we should be hoping and praying that he might change it all around and become the leader that the people thought they were voting in.
On a final note, if you are thinking that the UN stepping in would be a good thing, then you need to take a moment, think about how bad our government screws stuff up, then multiply that by 100.
To those who have chosen to rise up and occupy Wall Street, now known as OWS, you should stop and think about those who sent you, do they have a hidden agenda? You claim that the banks are evil, greedy bankers that are causing your school tuition to rise. First, the schools and universities set the tuition rates, the banks are the ones who lend you the money. The government could have capped the rates they charge, but chooses not to.
The professors of these universities that have tenor, and choose to teach about the evil corruption of capitalism and the rich, are some of the very people helping to establish the rates set by these schools. These professors who teach you that the rich must pay, are themselves some of the very rich they are getting you worked up about. Some of you have said that society should pay for your education, well, are you not part of society? Did you not voluntarily choose to further your education beyond your FREE public education? When you succeed in getting society to pay for your education, then it will be your responsibility as a member of society to pay for someone else’s. You’re well educated, stop and think. If you are able to accomplish their goal, will you share in this great defeat?
No, you will not, you will be blamed for the failure of the stimulus bailouts. They will claim that it was working until you brought down the whole system. They will not be affected by the collapse, but those close to you, your parents and grandparents are the ones who will suffer the greatest. You will lose any inheritance they may have had planned for you. They will lose their life savings, retirement funds, and 401(k) because you elected to follow the plans of destruction by the ones who will benefit the most from your success.
Protesting on Wall Street and at the Federal Reserves will not resolve anything, these actions will not bring the justice that you seek. If you truly wish to see the bankers and traders pay for their actions, then why is it you are not told to protest at the White House and Justice Department. That type of protest would force the arm of the media to cover your plight. It would force the president and US Attorney General to take actions and arrest those who you wish to see pay for their evil greed. How is it with your education, you have not asked – why are these top traders and bankers not being prosecuted by our government? But instead receiving bailout and stimulus funds.
There are union leaders who have made it very clear that they intend to destroy the banks and Wall Street. They are using their professors to organize the students from colleges and universities to achieve this, so that their hands remain clean. Surely you are not a “youthful idiot” as the dictator, Mussolini, once referred to the youth for the sole purpose of an uprising. You would have not chosen to pursue a higher education, if you were. Why is it, the president who is also supporting you and is rich, not standing there with you and handing out his wealth?
Therefore, it is utterly imperative that you ask yourself and peers, why are you not demanding the medias attention to get the president and Justice Department to arrest those responsible? Why would they want you to crash your own economy and country? For what purpose does it serve? Why are they not there standing by your side with you during these uprisings? You are being used merely as puppets that will take the fall for them, while in the end, the very bankers and traders you seek action against will simply walk away and keep their fortunes and your parents’ and grandparents’ savings, too.
Surely you do not believe in the ‘wealth redistribution’ they speak of. In a socialist society where wealth redistribution exist, it is not taking from the rich and powerful, it is the rich and powerful choosing to redistribute the wealth of all the citizens, except for their own wealth, of course.
Michael Moore is an example of those who talk about wealth redistribution, but do not mean their own personal wealth. He is there supporting you in New York. Why is he not giving each and every protestor at least (5) five ($100) one hundred dollar bills? He believes in wealth redistribution, so why is he not leading by example and handing out his wealth? He has millions himself. Should he not be sharing his wealth with you? After all, you are just a student barely making it. He most likely has it in one of those banks you are protesting, he should be able to go inside and make a withdraw. He even thinks Cuba is better than here, so why does he not live in Havana? Sean Penn, is another one like him, he says that it is better in Venezuela and yet he lives here. Ever get the feeling you have been lied to?
If you truly believe this is what they speak of, then take the time to visit Russia, China, and Cuba for 2 or 3 weeks, do not spend the night in a nice hotel in a major city, instead go to outlying areas. Ask their citizens how that system works. Do they like having multiple families in a single household? Do they enjoy not being able to afford a home computer or gaming system? Maybe they enjoy that only a few can buy a car. Their governments do supply them with their NEEDS, but their wants are entirely different. Do you truly believe you will be given a gaming console, satellite tv, cable, your own car, healthcare, food, and housing the way you know it now?
Before you make hasty decisions based upon their directive, you should ask yourself some of these basic questions. Have you thought about asking your parents or grandparents what would happen to them if these protests brought down the banks and Wall Street, or do you just blindly follow their commands? Would it not be better to see those responsible have their assets frozen and brought before the courts and not crash our country? Considering we have suffered so greatly at the hands of these few, why should Americans suffer anymore?
Now ask yourself, are these individuals asking you to protest at the wrong locations, for your benefit or for THEIRS? Seriously, let your intelligence glare through their smoking mirror campaign. In the end, you will be disappointed when the system you think you getting turns out to be something different. If your goal is to simply get a job, then show true American spirit and create one, heck create several for your friends and college buddies too, unless your simply too lazy and want handouts. If this is the case, then stop and think, if everyone is living off free food, free healthcare, free housing, free education, and free clothing, WHO is paying for it? Because the rich will move out of the country and take their money with them, therefore, someone has to work. In places like China and Russia, the government decides who will work, where, how long, and for how much, but their needs are free.
Muslim extremist reside here in America and others obtain visas from our government to come speak here at conferences. They openly talk about taking over our government, replacing our constitution, invoking sharia law, and executing those who fail to convert to Islam or obey sharia law. And our government and the media ignores this, instead, they make it seem as if this is not what they mean.
Understanding sharia law, women must be covered in public and they cannot hold positions in office, public or private. Sharia does not require due process, anyone can impose judgment, and without evidence. They do not have to wait for police or any other law enforcement in order to pass judgment and punish someone in a manner they see fit. Gays, lesbians, and adulterers are to be stoned to death. Atheist or any non-believers are to be executed without the option of converting to Islam. They do not stray from these beliefs. If they see fellow Muslims with a bible, christian literature, pamphlets, or even “think” they seen them with it, they have the right to kill them and cannot be found guilty of any crime according to sharia law.
Well, sharia law must work with them because they have grown up and been brainwashed with it. They haven’t given thought to how it would work inour society. We are creative here in America. We can turn their laws against them in a manner that they had never considered. By the time we are done using their laws against them, those that remain will be begging for America to remove any and all forms of sharia law.
If we find ourselves in the unfortunate situation of being overrun by these extremist and having to live by sharia law, we could most likely use sharia law to eliminate the extremist. Americans might simply say, we thought we saw them with a bible, christian pamphlet, or thought we heard them praising another God other than Allah. The punishment for this is death. According to sharia law, it will be justified judgment and punishment. This could become a double edged sword in a battle against extremism.
Unfortunately, I do not see it stopping there, people will be seeking revenge against those in the media, especially the faces they recognize, who failed to tell the truth about these people and what they plan to do. This will most likely apply to any and all politicians who did the same. They, too, will be held accountable for their attempts at trying to sugar coat the reality of these extremist agendas.
Many people, including Christians, will be claiming “tho shalt not kill” and this would be true. But it must be noted that even God has made it clear that there are exceptions, He also says that thou shall not spill the blood of the innocent. The bible even tells us that there always has been and always will be war. And being overrun by Muslim extremist would be considered war.
Therefore, if you are engaged in battle for the survival of Christians and Christianity itself, and are put in a position where you must STOP them, that will not be considered spilling the blood of an innocent man in the eyes of God. We would will do what the Romans had to do, and do it better. Once Americans have been awakened by the reality, the enemy of America and all Americans will regret waking up a sleeping beast that will show no mercy. Americans will make the Romans look like wimps that were too merciful on these people the first time.
Rick Perry is currently running for the Republican Presidential nomination. He started off looking really good and he showed much promise, but recently it is looking like he is losing steam. With his personality and lack of presentation skills, it looks like his goal of becoming our next president is diminishing fast.
For the most part, he has done a good job as governor of Texas. His state was the only one that was creating jobs when no one else was. He has been active in creating an atmosphere where businesses wants to set up shop and employ people when nobody else is. These where the main things that people were impressed by and a few years back, that would have been enough, but people are starting to wake up and pay attention. People are expecting more.
It has become apparent that he has issues with deportation and securing the Texas border. What is not clear is whether it is an attempt to get Hispanic voters or just another person trying to get cheap labor for the businesses he is attracting to Texas. Regardless of which way it appears, even though he is a state governor, he is a typical career politician seeking power and lifetime perks.
In regards to his views, policies, and talking points on the campaign trail, I must be honest, it does not matter what he says, when his lips move, all I seem to hear is, “I am a career politician who knows how to charm voters”. I for one, am sick of career politicians, that is how this country has slowly destroyed itself. This has become more apparent to people beside myself, as Mr. Perry’s poll numbers and nominee position has started tumbling downwards.
Another issue that has hurt him, is the recent debates over the name of the hunting campgrounds that Mr Perry and his family has leased for many years. First off, the name on that rock was a term used for decades to name such large rocks. Does this make it right? Absolutely not. However, it should be noted, that it was not him or his family that named it personally. Now he states that sometime after they began leasing the property, not sure when they corrected it, they painted over it and turned the rock over. Well, personally I feel that if it had really offended them, to begin with, then they would have made it part of the lease negotiations to have the owner take care of it before they leased it. This has become something that the other side and the media has blown out of proportion, when there are much bigger issues at stake.
The media has become so biased, it is hard to find the truth anymore. There have been a few incidents just in the past year that happened and you would think the media would have been all over it. Yet, they either refused to report it or they twisted the news to meet their agenda. I am referring to all media networks, not just certain ones, but all of them in general. And considering that journalist are all about getting the next juicy news, then why would they not report it?
Those on the right are always going off about how MSNBC, CNN, ABC, CBS, and NBC are left wing reporting. This is absolutely true, with MSNBC being the worst of them, however, FOX will do the very same thing. The only way to see the truth for yourself, is to watch both sides and see how they edit video clips to meet their agenda. Then find the full length videos and see what the original meanings was.
Recently, there was some issues over cell phone eavesdropping violations by the parent company of FOX News. FOX did little to NO reporting on this matter and the left had a field day with it. However, when it became apparent that the left wing media had done the same, the story simply died.
Back in January of 2011, there were two unfortunate incidents involving politicians by crazy lunatics, with wild ideas on how to deal with them. One was covered by the media like it was the worst thing to ever happen in American history, the President even spoke out and said that this type of rhetoric must be stopped and will not be tolerated. In Phoenix, AZ Gabriel Giffords was shot and many around her were killed. This was a very tragic story and unfortunate that some idiot thought this was the best way to handle his dispute. The guy who did the shooting was a young man that clearly had a right wing agenda. The media was all over this story like a fly on stink, they could not get enough coverage of the story. They dug into this man’s background, interviewed his neighbors, parents, classmates, and anyone else who knew him.
Around the same time in Kansas City, MO, Governor Jay Nixon, was a target of an assassination attempt at a local school. The schools dean, where the Governor was to speak, had his throat slashed by a 22 year old waiting in the library. The media refused to report the story. This young man’s Facebook page clearly showed that he was a left wing nut, pro-Islamic, anti-Capitalist, anti-Imperialist, and anti-Christian. The AP went as far as to remove any politics from the story altogether, simply saying man stabbed at KC school.
Why was this story buried? Why was it not news worthy? Clearly it could have been used to show a nationwide new trend, could it not? Was it because it went against their usual agenda of only showing that the right based voters are violent and that the left is ALWAYS peaceful? If this person would have been anti-Islamic, pro-Capitalist, and a Christian, yes, by all means they would have been bringing in reporters from around the world to report on it. Just another sign of how biased the media has become and will do anything possible to keep their nut bags out of the media. What was the difference in the two stories? A right wing nut was responsible for the attack in Arizona and a left wing nut was responsible in the attack in Kansas City, MO. So shouldn’t these stories have received about the same amount of coverage?
Even more recently, a Muslim man was attacked in St. Louis, MO by two other Muslims. They had carved the Star of David into his back and beat him, yet this was not news. They did this to him because he had written a poem that he thought what happened to the Jews during World War II was wrong. Is this not a hate crime? Was it not news because these were simply peaceful Muslims like they are always trying to convince us of? Was it not news because someone from the left did the attacking?
There have been two Islamic conferences held in the city of Chicago, one in 2009 and again this year, June 2011. They openly talk about overthrowing our government and replacing it with their own. They openly talk about replacing our Constitution with their own. They want to replace our laws with Sharia Law and anyone not abiding, is to be executed. They openly talk about world domination. Yet, the media does not find it news worthy, is it because they have spent all their time and energy convincing us that they are peaceful?
I will let you watch the news and draw your own conclusions. However, I suggest that you start paying closer attention to what you’re being told. If they are not telling you the whole story and the truth, STOP watching them. Over time they will have to get back to real journalism to get their ratings back. If their ratings drop, so will their advertisers which will force them to either report the truth or close the doors.
This is a topic that seems to be causing quite a stir and debate. Personally, I think the president did the right thing and deserves his moment of glory. I am also hoping that maybe he will enjoy his moment of glory to himself, quietly so we can go at least one day without his face on the TV, something he has not done since he was a Senator. But even though he is a showboat, he still deserves credit for killing an enemy combatant.
Let us take a moment and look at the American citizen who the president ordered a hit on. This young man voluntarily chose to give up being an American, chose to give up living in America, and chose to join the enemy forces in trying to kill innocent Americans. This young man joined the Islamic extremist in their battle to kill infidels (that being you and me). These Islamic extremist that he has decided to join, is a group of evil individuals. They do not have any regard to their targets, they will kill men, women, and children, regardless if you are black, white, young, or old.
This brings about many new questions. Is the president cracking down now because he is in a re-election campaign and he needs to appear hard on them? Was the young man targeted because he was an enemy combatant or because he was an American citizen? If the president feels bad that he was put into a position to go after an American, who joined the enemy, then should he not be stopping the problem where it starts?
Currently, these extremist openly solicit students at universities and colleges, while the president, media, and the Justice Department look the other way. Why? I have recently heard, that on June 26th, 2011, these extremists held a conference in the presidents own city of Chicago, where the president’s right-hand man Rahm Emanuel is now the Mayor. It was called “The Kalifeh Conference”, and nobody said a word about it. They openly try to recruit our American citizens, they talk about world domination, replacing our government with their own, replacing our constitution with their own, and the president, media and Justice Department say nothing. That is not prevention, that sounds like “Hope” and “Change” Chicago-style.
One person who completely caught me off guard on this issue was Dr Ron Paul, he absolutely opposes the attack on this American citizen. This is one area that I must disagree with Dr Paul. He has remained true in his beliefs and values for over 30 years and has some very valid points about our government. But on this particular issue, I must disagree. This young man chose to pursue a life working with the enemy of America. He attempted to kill Americans and was proud of it. I will stand behind the president in his decision to target and kill this person. Are we expected to go after everyone around this guy but give him some sort of diplomatic immunity, of course not. It is sad, but the right thing was done. The problem should not be whether or not to kill our enemies, but how to stop these recruiters from indoctrinating our youth.
